Defence, disability key to budget

Treasurer Scott Morrison has nominated finding money for disability services and defence as key priorities for his first budget.

Mr Morrison will deliver the budget on May 3, possibly ahead of a double-dissolution election on July 2.

The treasurer said he was focusing on getting government payments as a share of GDP down, while finding billions of dollars for the national disability insurance scheme and defence projects.
